Following the sudden passing of her brother, Eddie struggles to navigate her world and relationships. When the memory of Erin begins to shift and distort, Eddie must face the question of what it means to hold onto someone after they’re gone.  A new play by Alison Crosby, developed through Neptune’s own INKubator program in partnership with PARC, In Lieu Of Flowers is an exploration of the complexities of grief, loyalty, and what happens to those who are left behind.
